The rainy season is now eventually in full swing. Today's weather was probably as close to the way I love things as you can get. It was sunny for most of the day with a brief time of rain but by the time I left the office, the sun was back out again and there was a beautiful rainbow in the sky.
We don't get to pick the weather, God/nature does that for us. We just have to figure out a way to cope in the midst of them. Be it a hail storm, tornado, tropical cyclone or a raging thunder storm they all have their own unique dangers.
Life is like that too. We don't get to choose what crisis will be thrown at us. Sickness, financial failure, marriage breakups a loss of a family member are all devastating storms of life. There is one thing that both types of storms do have in common though and that is that often they change the course of our lives.
Tornado's destroy homes and so do divorces, but both happen in our world today. How do we rise above these storms and stay strong in God? We need to make sure that we are anchored in our relationship with God. In the same way that homes in tornado zones are built with a strong basement, so too our Christian faith should be anchored by the knowledge that because God loves us and He will always bring about the best outcome for us, even if that outcome is our own passing from this life to the next.
Storms come and go but when the pass, we get up and we rebuild that which was broken. It is in those times that we must never forget Romans 8:28 that all things work together for the good of them that love God and are called according to his purposes.
